at the copenhagen conference proved one thing beyond all doubt. green business is big business and the car industry knows that better than anyone. if they want to stay on the road to success they have to be sustainable. and one of the worlds leading auto making countries - germany is taking the development of green cars very seriously. >>reporter: its a fair bet that karl benz would both be proud and appalled in equal measure at what his invention has brought to the world. mercedes benz cars had come to symbolise both status and gas guzzling excess....as do all the luxury german brands. all have taken a hit in the economic downturn....but at a different level from other carmakers: >>pieper: we have this deep recession even in the premium car business...which is a new phenomenon.. .weve never seen this before... so this makes them suffer...but suffer on a high level, so to say. bmw is atbreak even, even in this recession ...audi is making money...porsche is making nice money...even inthe recession. and mercedes has made losses over two quarters...this...and they come out probably the second half. >>
talk a little bit about energy but not much about copenhagen again or climate change and the development agenda with regard to adaptation and mitigation. >> thank you, hattie. has you know, we are very committed to a program of supporting adaptation and mitigation and technology transfer in the developing world. i went to copenhagen and announced that the united states would commit to do our part of $100 billion by 2020. we worked very hard to get the building blocks of an agreement that would enable us to do so. the accord that we finally hammered out did have requirements for verification and transparency which have to be adhered to in order for us to be able and, frankly, willing to make these investments. but i think that for many of the developing countries, this is a lifeline that they are desperate to have and that they will work with us as we try to sort out how best to deliver on that commitment. this is going to be an ongoing challenge and that is why i mention we have to do a better job of getting some of the other countries that have a role to play more co
and the countdown to copenhagen 15, which was such a great disappointment. we have now joined by lars vattenfhor. we heard earlier this week, of course, from the president talking about infrastructure, as well as there's big pressures on energy infrastructure at the moment, as well well. how are we, in the failure of copenhagen and the squeezing budgets, it's all about the budget being squeezed this week in europe in particular. how is that going to impact investment in europe in energy infrastructure? >> well, it's all about investment, you can say. and that i mean energy security. i mean climate change. i mean jobs, i mean growth. clearly, what has happened in copen hague.en or what did not happen in copenhagen means higher uncertainty, less investments and a delay. >> but all this pressure, as well, is on government budgets. you can't open a paper. and we talked to jean claude trichet yesterday, the greek prime minister, alistair darling in the uk, you can't open a paper without the discussion of governments having to get down their budget deficit. how is that going impact? >> i think it's going

that it is really a problem, and i think also, the really effective work that was done in copenhagen and trying to get the chinese and the indians in particular on board, because that's a big argument that the opponents make, is that, you know, we're going to do all this, we're going to, you know, raise our energy prices, we're going to make it harder to do business and then china and india are going to go take advantage of that and use that as a competitive advantage and we're going to lose more jobs, so -- but there are lots and lots of examples on both sides of effective messaging and ineffective and i think professor griffin will talk about that later. he'll probably give you a lot more insight into it too. yeah. >> we talked about -- [inaudible] -- if so, why and if you've seen advantages or disadvantages to that or not being a federally registered lobbyist and working through them instead. >> well, i've only been doing this for two years and in the two years i've been doing it, the rules have been very clear, so you know, there is -- there's really not much gray in what i do. you know, i'

in copenhagen where you saw president obama having to wrestle with all these tensions. can you imagine the nerve it took to walk into closed-door sessions as the president blowing at diplomatic protocol, wrenching the copenhagen assembly out of its original approach and into something new and doing this not knowing if it was going to work. in the article, i wrote about an important moment for president obama and he would get to this one way or another. this would be in the summer of 1864 near the end of president lincoln's first term. he reelection campaign is going and it is not going well. in fact, he in of the political experts in the country think he is going to lose. furthermore they think he is going to lose to general mcclellan who will not pursue lankan score policies in the civil war. lincoln, at that point, is living with the idea that he said hundreds of thousands of young men to their deaths for a failed war. he will be known as the president to failed to hold the union together. he is getting up every morning with that knowledge, living with a wife who was, frankly at times, psychot
the stage for further cooperation with china in preparation for the copenhagen conference on climate change. he discussed exchange rates and trade, clean energy, military to military exchanges, human rights, and stopping the spread of nuclear weapons. we outline the key of compliments of the visit in a joint statement issued by president obama and president hu jintao on november 17. it has been said before that in order to get china right, you have to get the region right. the united states is a vital contributor to asian security and economic prosperity. our active presence in asia helps promote regional security and stability. we intend to deepen our engagement and strengthen our leadership in the region by strengthening our commitments to allies and partners, and enhancing our involvement in regional institutions. and the secretary addressed these issues, as well as our presence in the region, in an important speech in honolulu yesterday. the president's trip to china demonstrates that fact in the region demonstrate the importance we place on east asia which remains vital to u.s. securit

is a little bit of a narrower one. you talked a little bit about energy but not much about copenhagen and climate change and agenda assistance with regard to adaptation and mitigation? >> right. thank you. as you know, we're very committed to a program of supporting adaptation and mitigation and technology transfer in the developing world. i went to copenhagen and announced that the united states would committee to do our part of 100 billion dollars - by 2020. we worked very hard to get the building blocks of an agreement that would enable us to do so. the accord that we finally hammered out did have requirements for verification and transparency that have to be adhered to, in order for us to be able and frankly, willing to make the investments. i think for many of the developing countries. this is a lifeline that they are desperate to have and that they will work with us as we try to sort out how best to deliver on that commitment. this is going to be an on-going challenge, and that's why i mentioned we have to do a better job of getting some of the other countries that have a role

for opportunity might have been disappointed by the action in copenhagen, which seemed to devolve in its final hours into this dispute between us and the chinese. you think it was a success, right? >> i think overall it was -- you know, you've got heads of state to understand this, the chinese and the u.s. ultimately came together, president obama demonstrate the his just remarkable personal commitment to this, the chinese for the first time have made commitments on this front. you've got heads of state all over the world focusing on the great importance of this issue. getting these very large governmental institutions to focus on climate change and come to understand it is extremely important because they're the ones that have to drive the changes of policy that are then going to introduce renewable energy, lots more energy conservation, forest conservation, and most important of all, for your listeners, this whole new area of climate finance, which is going to spread very rapidly. they're going to be hundreds and hundreds of billions of dollars invested year after year for a long period of t

is the security of the citizens. >> thank you mr. speaker. given the disappointing finish to the copenhagen conference what action can my honorable friend tell us he will be taking in order to keep the momentum up on this absolutely vital task of climate change? >> mr. speaker, for the first time the world was able to agree that we should not have a climate change policy that did not address the problems of rising temperatures and the 2% limit was agreed by all countries. we also have agreement countries will notify what they will do by 2020 and they've got to do so by january 31st. we are obviously pressing countries to be in the position they can reduce the amount of gigatons in carbon and greenhouse gas emissions from the mid 50's in 2020 to the mid 40's and there has been a great transparency achieved with every country agreeing to report what they are doing that we have not yet got the international duty that we need and we haven't yet got the announcement from all countries they support the 50% reduction by 2015. that is what is still to be done and i agree we must not talk to all tho
of copenhagen he walked into a meeting supposed to be a bilateral with china, the chinese were trying to elevate him and he broke in and sat next to llewelyn from brazil, changed the game and got the deal, the five power deal with ever and it's perfectly fits this narrative of obama savings the day of what would have been complete disaster and i don't want to get into great detail but i've noticed this in the cuba policy i tracked closely even up to two or three days before the summit of the americas jeffrey, ambassador, former ambassador to mexico was essentially delivering, excuse this, richard, the neoconservative line of latin america. there was no evidence they were willing to say to diprete position where obama is coming. when he got the portfolio 180-degree shift in the direction comes of this is interesting you set up one attention challenges you got to be losing terribly to get his attention but when you do get his attention there is a very need almost to actually fundamentally change the dynamics and feel that and when you get this access show the narrative in the stories. >> i judge t
of the 2-20 was the shape of the emerging world. i looked back to the scene at copenhagen where the president burst into the room, but who is in the room? brazil, india, china, what is the arrangement of these new power arrangements? secondly, looking forward to the end of his first term, what is it reasonable to ask of this president in shaping what is reasonable to ask of this president in shaping -- >> what is reasonable to ask of this president in shaping this presidency. >> i am not so sure that it is a post american world. -- post-american world. we aren't indispensable nation, -- we are an indispensable nation. in asia, i thought that the coverage of obama's relations with asia was poor. when he came back from asia, the prime minister of india came to the white house for a state visit and obama is effectively in certain the united states into haitian politics and recognizing the degree to which of the rising powers of asia turned to the united states for some kind of leverage and balance. . . obama seems to be moving toward this new alignment. personally, i think this rei
in copenhagen where he said, the problem is the white people in the world. the second question is there is a country -- a company in brazil that is an offshore drilling company that in june, the obama administration gave a $15 billion loan to and i think is quite ironic that in february, george soros bought majority shares in that company. effectively, this administration has paid back george soros for getting elected with taxpayer funds. guest: i do not know anything about the second issue, but i can comment on the first. the brazilian president is a colorful, charismatic leader. then he has been for some to, to a half years. very annoyed that they have had to do things that the united states and europe-not have to do. and he has -- have not had to do. and he has been very open about saying that they have not had to do things that they've had to do in developing countries. host: salt lake city, democratic cruller. caller: we have -- and democratic collar. host: we have more natural gas than any of the country. wyoming has a huge amount. we have not even put pipelines for the n
, of course, to various parties such as the u.n. human rights council and the copenhagen climate change conference which demonstrated spectacularly the fatuousness of such international structures, the lack of common purpose, interest, and governance. yet, the failure of these international institutions and paper agreements seems to leave no lasting impression. did we really learn nothing from the early 20th century experience? did we really learn nothing from the kellogg pact whose signatories included germany and japan that abolished war forever? it won kellogg the peace prize in 1929. sound familiar? at least he got it for an actually signed useless treaty. obama got it for the imagined it useless treaty's most notably the one he has been insisting on for universal nuclear disarmament. the deaths of obama's 98 internationalism can be seen in his pursuit of this deeply and serious blow. this occurred on september 24th, one day after his speech to the general assembly when he asked -- when he ostentatiously presided over the security council, the first time an american president has ev
korea, and afghanistan. the president said the stage for further cooperation in copenhagen on climate change. he discussed exchange rates and trade, clean energy, military-to-military education changes, human rights, and stopping the right of spread of the nuclear weapons. in a joint statement issued by president obama and jintao. in order to get china right, you have to get the region right. this is the vital to economic prosperity. our act of presence helps promote regional security and stability. we intend to deepen our engagement and strengthen by strengthening our commitments to allies and partners and enhancing our involvement in regional institutions. the secretary addressed these issues as well as our presence in the region in an important speech in honolulu yesterday. the president's trip to china -- and the region, demonstrated the importance we place on east asia which remains vital to u.s. security and prosperity. in the november joint statement, the chinese recognize the positive role that the united states plays by saying they welcome the united states has a an asia-paci
billion commitment to a host of humanitarian and reconstruction efforts. in copenhagen, it was japan and the prime minister that provided the most generous support for efforts in the developing world to deal with the adaptations that climate change will bring to the disadvantaged. -- and we have seen japanese support to haiti, communicated directly to the secretary when we were in hawaii. i think overall we've seen indications of this new government -- and we believe it will be critical in the coming months to make sure that our two governments are working closely together. you but clearly our issues that require more work and more consultation and from the u.s. government perspective, we're prepared to work with our japanese interlocketters. we've outlined what's our best way forward with the r.f.r. plan, and we expect those consultations with our senior japanese interlocketters will be continuing. i'll be leading a delegation to japan in about two weeks' time where we will continue those discussions going forward. i think the secretary and the prime minister wants to use next year
